Gwyneth Paltrow is known for coming out with some pretty bizarre and often downright ridiculous things. From her promotion of yoni eggs and vaginal steaming to her insistence that she’d rather smoke crack than eat spray cheese, it’s pretty clear she’s… eccentric, to say the least. However, releasing a candle called “This Smells Like My Vagina” via her lifestyle brand Goop is a whole new level of wrongness.
It apparently started as a joke. Paltrow claims that the name for the candle came about by accident when she smelled the fragrance, created by perfumer Douglas Little, and blurted out, “Uhh… this smells like a vagina!” Sure, sounds like a legit and totally reasonable story. Why it needed to be brought to a mass market is beyond me.
Paltrow worked endlessly to perfect the scent. Not 100% happy with its initial incarnation, Paltrow said that she and Little worked tirelessly until the candle had “evolved into a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent.” Dear God.
So what does it actually smell like? The notes of Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina candle are “geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed,” according to the item description. You know, exactly like every lady part you’ve ever smelled.
It’s $75 and already sold out. If you can believe it, the Goop website is now starting a waiting list since their stock of the candle is already gone. Yes, people are flocking in droves to pay $75 that apparently smells like Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina. What’s going on in the world?
Maybe people are buying it as a gag gift? After all, I don’t think anyone could order a candle that smells like Paltrow’s lady bits and take themselves seriously. Surely it’s being bought surely as a novelty product and because of it’s ridiculousness rather than in spite of it? Here’s hoping.
